Developed by Henry Flagler as a high-end tourist metropolis and site for luxurious hotels like The Breakers, photograph taken ca. early 1930’s, with “cottages” for the super-rich already built along the beach in the background (not seen). In the foreground, the privately owned, tollway Florida East Coast Canal (a dredged linear portion of Lake Worth) became the federally controlled, toll-free Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway in 1929. Amenities included a golf course, tennis courts, a swimming pool, and arrangements for deep-sea fishing. Courtesy, SMU Libraries.
